Fare Thee Well Shannan

POST #    1145

Last night, a bunch of people got together to wish Shannan good luck. See, for some strange reason, she's moving to Virginia. Something about a job with a nifty title. Lucky for everyone in New York, her plan is to return within a year. She also promises to visit frequently and have a housewarming party. So if you're in Southern Virginia...you know where the party's at.

There were over 20 people and 200 wings ordered. Good thing the wings were only 10¢ each. Really, an insane amount of food, drink and fun. Good times. Too bad it was for such a sad event.

What's up with your friends moving away one by one?

Those ribs look yummy.

those are actually leftover wings...

i seem to have this ability to drive people away. it's like a gift or something. (no, i don't really have that ability.)

ah yes, good times had by all... but a sad event indeed. i cried the whole subway ride home. very embarrassing.

Awesome picture Shanman, can we start calling you rubber lips. You are one hot momma!

I am really sad you are leaving and can't wait to visit you. We will show those military boys how to shake it.

Christina, big hug out to you - tears on the subway sucks - did any loney try to tell you to smile?

We went to Croxley's, it is on Ave B between 2nd and 3rd street. A very fun area. It has a large outdoor area open in the summer. Mmmmm it has good beer too and obviously good wings - in mild and not so mild.

Hey man, I live in southern Virginia.

Where is this forthcoming party of which you speak? I'll bing the Pictionary!

Southern Virginia rocks! It is the Norfolk/Va Beach area, because, honestly, I can't imagine anywhere else in southern Virginia that could draw someone away from NYC.

And damn you Tien, now I want wings real bad.

Good luck, Shannan. Sorry I couldn't make it, but clearly someone ate my share of beer and wings.
